    Scale a picture

    How do I scale down the size of a picture? If I use MS Paint it just cuts it off and doesn't resize the whole thing.
    Boy you stink, go take a shower before you continue to code. Better do your laundry and spray your chair too.

    The one and only resource for finding information.

    Next version of windows released!!!!

    If you still want to use Paint, just use Stretch/Skew.

    basically if you have an image

    press CTRL+A or use the crop tool to make a border to select what you want to scale

    then press the IMAGE bar and press STRETCH/SKEW

    Then on the top 2 fill in's type in a % like 50% for both would make the picture 1/2 of the original size
